Bhushan Kumar Dua (born 27 November 1977) is an Indian film producer and music producer. He is the chairman and managing director of Super Cassettes Industries Limited, also known as T-Series. He is known for his works in Bollywood.
Kumar took control of the music company T-Series in 1997 when he was 19 after the murder of his father, Gulshan. He went on to become the chairman and managing director of this number one music company in India.
As managing director, Kumar diversified the company's business into electronics, CDs, audio/video tapes and cassettes and film production. For this and for popularising Indian music overseas, he was honoured by the Government of India's Electronics and Software Export Promotion Council.
After firming his company's presence in the music market, Bhushan Kumar ventured into making films.
In 2013, Kumar produced Nautanki Saala. The same year, Bushan Kumar released a remake of Aashiqui, Aashiqui 2. Aashiqui 2 proved to be a turning point for Bhushan's production house as it was considered to be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2013.
Kumar's subsequent projects included such films as Yaariyan, a youth-based film helmed by his wife Divya Khosla Kumar. In 2014, Bhushan Kumar revived B.R. Chopra Films with Bhoothnath Returns. He then entered the genre of sci-fi thriller with Creature 3D, starring Bipasha Basu and Imran Abbas and directed by Vikram Bhatt.
On 3 April 2017, Kumar signed a contract with Akshay Kumar in front of the 300-year-old Lord Shiva temple in Maheshwar for the movie Mogul, which is an official biopic based on the life of his father Gulshan Kumar. However, Akshay Kumar quit the film and Aamir Khan agreed to do the part, only to quit and return later.
Bhushan Kumar was born in Delhi to the founder of T-Series, owner Gulshan Kumar and his wife Sudesh Kumari Dua. Kumar married Divya Khosla on 13 February 2005 at the Maa Vaishno Devi shrine in Katra. They have a son born in October 2011.
